Phallus Reconstruction Photographs


The average length for an adult male erect phallus is about 5 inches; the average non-erect length is about 3.5 inches. In creating a neophallus, the microsurgeons will oftentimes create a phallus that will be about 5 inches. However, for some patients, this 5 inch length may negatively affect activities of daily living, and therefore phallus shortening may be required and desired by some.


The following photos are of a patient who had successful phalloplasty who needed phallus shortening with concomitant glansplasty.
